City Begins Work on 30th Street Stormwater Force Main

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
Crews have begun video surveying and mobilizing construction equipment for a new stormwater force main located along 30th Street from 113th Avenue to south of Bougainvillea Avenue. The project will improve stormwater service and reliability for residents and businesses in the area. This new force main will convey stormwater out of and around the low-lying duck pond area. Construction will start in mid-June and is scheduled to be completed in winter 2012.

Residents and businesses along the project route will receive advance notice prior to active construction beginning in their neighborhoods. Safety for the public and work crews is very important. Construction areas will be restricted from public access and will be clearly marked with caution tape, safety fences, or barricades.

The $2.7 million 30th Street Stormwater Force Main project is one component of the City’s Utility Capital Improvement Projects (UCAP), an important infrastructure improvement program designed to improve reliability and service by replacing the City’s aging water, wastewater, and stormwater pipelines. The CH2M HILL team designed the project and will also act as general contractor. The project is a cooperative effort between the City of Tampa and Hillsborough County and is being funded by the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County and grants from the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
